I know a lot of people use the chest freezers as fermentation chambers, but I think they work better for serving beer.
I understand I added height to my keezer with a wood collar, but you would not have to lift carboys in and out of a converted upright freezer of fridge like you you would with the chest type.

I agree. I have enough trouble getting a corny in in and out of my keezer. My old refrigerator fermentation chamber is much easier to move buckets and carboys in and out of.
